A Salisbury couple have been left without any power to their home after their neighbour turned off the electrical supply and refused to turn it back on.

Julia, 59, and Kevin, 58, Sheppard decided to buy a dilapidated former coach house and renovate it to create their dream home but now claim they have been left in a "nightmare" situation.
